Reggae legends The Wailers have announced a headline UK tour this winter and will be playing one gig in Glasgow’s O2 ABC this November!

The Wailers are to tour in November performing iconic album Legend in its entirety, stopping at Glasgow’s O2 ABC on the 17th of November 2015!

The famous reggae band, which came together with Bob Marley in 1969, have announced 12 UK gigs at which they will perform iconic album Legend in its entirety. The album includes chart-topping hits Three Little Birds, I Shot The Sherrif and Jamming.

In their long career The Wailers have sold more than 250 million albums across the world and notched up 20 chart hits, seven of them making the Top 10. They have performed to an estimated 24 million people, helping to keep reggae in the public eye. Previously the band have performed thematically, fashioning gigs around sets from albums such as Legend, Exodus and Survival.

Legend was the twelfth album released by Bob Marley and The Wailers and the second posthumously. Containing all 10 of Marley’s Top 40 UK hit singles, it came out in 1984. Marley wasn’t around to reap the rewards because he had died of cancer three years earlier, leaving fans across the world to mourn.

Legend is said to be the best-selling reggae album of all time with more than 30 million copies shifted worldwide.

The band also intends to perform tracks from Exodus on its forthcoming tour. So reggae fans in Glasgow will have to mark the 17th of November as a red letter day as The Wailers are coming to Glasgow’s O2 ABC!
